Selena Seebaran

A week ago on the first day of the new school term, 16-year-old Selena Seebaran got on a school bus to head to Tableland High School.

Selena did not turn up for classes and still has not been seen nor has she contacted her family.

She was reported missing to police by her family, whom she lives with at St Croix Road, Princes Town.

On Monday, Tableland police said there have not been any leads on her whereabouts.

Selena is of East Indian descent, approximately 170 centimetres (five feet six inches tall), slim built, with a brown complexion and long black hair.

She was last seen wearing her school uniform—a white shirt, blue skirt, blue and white striped tie and a pair of black shoes and socks.

“I SAY I was on a murder charge, the kind of money I paid my ­lawyer.” That lament came from Errol Gooptar, who was charged with robbery in 2016. Payments to his attorney began after their first encounter at the cell at the police station. “He took $1,500 to see me in the holding cell, to make sure everything was in order,” Gooptar recalled.
